Pervin Clasper at Shakti Healing Centre in Hong Kong is something of a legend. She’s impossible to get an appointment with (the waitlist is only open to regulars and often longer than six months) and is one of the most demanded Reiki, energy and holistic healers in Hong Kong. After Compare Retreats’ Founder Dervla Louli experienced a one-on-one appointment with Pervin at Shakti Healing Centre at 1 Glenealy Street, it’s easy to see what all the hype is about.
As soon as I walk into the petite and perfectly formed space, I can feel the energy shift immediately. The bars just below me on Wyndham Street are forgotten, and I feel more centred than I have in months. When I ask Pervin about it, she shares that they have to clear the energy daily and of course everything is Feng Shui’d and aligned because this kind of calm doesn’t come naturally in the city centre of Hong Kong.
Mumbai-born Pervin takes a holistic and whole-person approach to healing, and her infamous intuition comes into play as soon as I sit into the seat across from her in the crystal-filled treatment room. Her natural people reading skills (which are quite incredible) are complemented by a psychology major and postgraduate diploma in Psychotherapy for anyone who prefers a more practical approach. She is also a Master Teacher in Traditional Usui Reiki and Magnified Healing, a Certified Master Coach and Certified Practitioner in Emotional Freedom Technique, and a Certified Practitioner in Pranic Healing and Tera Mai Seikhem Reiki. Her healing toolbox is extensive, and she uses a combination of all of them in most sessions.
The one-hour session passes by quickly, and before I know it, the Ying/Yang imbalance I’d been feeling for weeks is fixed. An excellent healing session is hard to put into words but I’ve experienced many, and this was up there with the best. Pervin made me realise that any problems I brought up could be fixed by shifting my perception—genius if you think about it. I hugged her as I left and felt a million times better and more balanced walking out than I did when I first entered the centre.
As the saying goes, dynamite comes in a small box, and this tidy little healing centre that has been around for twelve years is one of the most powerful places I’ve come across in Hong Kong. While individual appointments with Pervin are hard to secure due to her full schedule, several group sessions can be booked weekly.
